Great Hotel
Overall this hotel is always great. Lovely rooms, nice staff, and the outdoor area is always a delight. The only downside is no desk area so if you're traveling for work it's a laptop across the legs in bed. But everything else is so nice, it's worth it.

First but not last time visiting Wilmington
Perfectly located within walking distance to Wilmington’s riverwalk. From Valet to check out - the staff is both friendly and informative, offering plenty of suggestions on where and what to do in their community.

Unique Stay
This a very cute updated boutique hotel. The hotel is about 2-3 blocks from all the main attractions in downtown Wilmington. Easy to walk from the hotel. The Dram Yard restaurant on the property was convenient for breakfast. The service and food was good. I wish they had a coffee maker and microwave in the room. They do have a small fridge filled with drinks for you to purchase. A water station and ice maker on the property would be nice as well. If you are picky about your pillows go ahead and bring your own. They go flat very fast. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very nice. We had a very rare incident occur that involved us being locked out of our room for approximately 4 hours. This did cause some Inconvenience to us but the staff on site worked hard to resolve the situation. Overall I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for a unique stay from typical hotels.
